Grantek’s Sam Russem Discusses The Many Considerations of HMI Upgrades with Automation World Magazine
January 10, 2023
The December 2022 issue of Automation World Magazine reviews how upgrading human-machine interface (HMI) hardware and software amid industry’s digital transformation is rarely the direct replacement process it once was. Grantek’s Sr. Director of Smart Manufacturing Solutions, Sam Russem, was interviewed for this article.
“Most modern HMI software can adapt to various applications, though you should pick something matching your SCADA strategy so you can merge applications for consistency and licensing savings later,” says Sam Russem, Sr. Director of Smart Manufacturing Solutions at system integrator Grantek. “Your application and [operating] environment can have huge implications for the hardware you choose.”
